Triumph Tiger Cub
A 1957 Triumph Tiger Cub.
The Triumph Tiger Cub is British motorcycle made by Triumph Motorcycles at their Meriden factory. Designed by Edward Turner and launched at the Earls Court show in November 1953 the Tiger Cub competed well against the other small capacity motorcycles of the time such as Villiers two-strokes.
The first Tiger Cub was derived from the Triumph Terrier with the same frame and forks. In 1957 an off-road version the T20C was produced with high level exhaust and improved suspension. The original model had a plunger frame but this was changed to the modern pattern of swinging fork and two suspension units in 1957.
